Gold standard: On the 12th day of competition at Vancouver 2010, Canadian history was made in Bobsleigh when Calgary’s Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse (Summerside, PEI) won gold in the women’s two-man event, sharing the podium with fellow Canadians Helen Upperton (Calgary, AB) and Shelley-Ann Brown (Pickering, ON) who claimed silver. While Upperton and Brown have both retired, Humphries is looking to return and defend her title at Sochi 2014.

On this day:  Canada beats Switzerland 13-0 to secure the gold medal in men’s hockey on February 19, 1928 at the Winter Games in St. Moritz for its third straight Olympic Hockey gold medal. Canada has a total of eight men’s Hockey gold medals en route to Sochi 2014.

Curler Russ Howard (Midland, ON) celebrates his 50th birthday on February 19, 2006, five days before winning gold at the XX Olympic Winter Games in Turin with teammates Brad Gushue (St. John’s, NL), Mark Nichols (St. John’s, NL), Jamie Korab (St. John’s, NL) and Mike Adam (St. John’s, NL). The victory made him Canada’s oldest Olympic gold medallist in history.
